What Should You Do In The Event Of a Spinal Cord Injury?

Spinal Cord Injury Victims

According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, 36.5% of crashes led to spinal cord injuries (SCI) in the United States. Slip and fall/trip and fall accidents are the second most common cause of spinal cord injuries, followed by acts of violence and sports. There are approximately 40 spinal cord injury cases each year for every one million people in the American population. This data translates into hundreds of New York spinal cord injuries each year.
A spinal cord injury occurs when there is damage to any part of the spinal cord or nerves at the end of the spinal canal. Spinal cord injuries often cause permanent changes in strength, sensation, and other body functions, which puts people in critical condition at the time of the injury.

If you suspect someone has a serious back or neck injury, remember the following important tips:
• Never move the injured person, as this may result in permanent paralysis and other serious complications.
• Call 911 or your local emergency medical assistance number.
• Keep the person still.
• Place heavy towels on both sides of the neck or hold the head and neck to prevent them from moving until emergency care arrives.
• Provide basic first aid, such as stopping any bleeding and making the person comfortable, without moving the head or neck.
